India is another undefeated team apart from New Zealand till now in the group stage.
They are already done with two top teams, Australia and New Zealand and left with matches against England, West Indies, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.

While they will eye Pakistan match for another victory, India will be a tough contender. If they manage to win against Pakistan, they will have a fair chance of qualification although it will depend a lot on England and Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka in World Cup 2019

Sri Lanka’s next matches are against England, West Indies, and South Africa. Winning all three matches will make them enter the semi-final but anything less than that will make them dependant on other teams.
